Because It Works!
RHCC Prevention Program goal is to address the need of the communities served by providing quality and culturally responsive services. RHCC Prevention Program strives to reach as many as we can by supporting and implementing evidenced based programs, policies, and practices that will help reduce, delay or prevent the onset of drugs and alcohol in our communities.
RHCC Prevention staff implements science/evidence based curriculums in local schools and community settings. These programs work to change the balance between risk and protective factors where protective factors outweigh risk factors.
The Prevention Program also serves as members on several different community coalitions to collaborate with community members and stakeholders to address issues that affect our community.
RHCC Prevention Program was one of the four North Carolina Prevention Resource Centers (NC CPRS). NC CPRs helped to establish a regional hub to support local system capacity building and provide substance abuse prevention technical assistance to organizations, providers, and communities. RHCC Prevention Program continue to play a vital role in the Prevention field and is guided by the strategic Prevention Framework.
The Program is also involved in many local community activities throughout the year they include but are not limited to the following:
Annual NOPE (Narcotic Overdose Prevention) Vigil-to bring awareness to the effects of drugs in our community
Annual Youth Led-Town Hall Meeting-Presented by community youth to address issues that affect youth in our community like drugs and alcohol.
Annual RHCC Prevention Day in the Mall-held in collaboration with Biggs Park Mall to bring awareness to the community about the programs and services that Robeson Health Care Corporation offer.
